Trump Resorts To Blogging After Losing Election And Right To Tweet | The Beat With Ari Melber


After failing to launch a social media app of his own, Donald Trump launched a blog instead. At the same time, the Republican party is now trying to rebrand as populist and against big tech corporations like Facebook and Twitter. MSNBC’s Ari Melber is joined by political strategist Chai Komanduri to discuss how this supposed “clash” with some companies is merely an attempt by Republicans to say they’re confronting corporations and representing “working class” voters. (This interview is from MSNBC’s “The Beat with Ari Melber, a news show covering politics, law and culture airing nightly at 6pm ET on MSNBC. ).

  1. Trump already has a note from his doctor to get out of criminal trials:
    Phone Spurs.

    1. Name One President Who Was In The Military…Slick Willy ?…Huessein Obama ?…C”mon, Name One plz..

    2. @B Bodziak AH…..that must be why he didn’t keep his pay. Remember when Obama donated his pay? NO, you don’t because not only did he keep it all he was the first “President” to leave Office as a multi-millionaire.

    1. I yell at the cloud daily, “gimme back my data cloud!” ( angrily shakes fist at nothing)

    2. @Kevin Santich When you see a cloud appear either above you or in front of you, stare at it an ask it to move on and go away – According to Billy Connolly . I’ve tried it, and it works. Who knew ?

    1. I bring that up when trumpsters talk about Biden’s faculties. If that’s not an old man brain fart I don’t know what is.

    2. @Trapped in America I just remind them that Fred Trump had Alzheimer’s and that it’s genetic and hereditary.

    3. @Sarah F 4.0 The Church of Baby Cheesus projects everything, even the Toddler Messiah’s hereditary diseases.

    4. @Sarah F 4.0 here’s another
      Fred trump to roy cohn to donald.
      Roy cohn to Joseph Mccarthy (who brought us McCarthyism in the 40s-50s.
      They’re all interwoven

  2. I bet if all these “woke” companies took their money and left the talk would change quickly.

    1. It already happened, they publicly raged against Coke, and donny was sipping on Coke just a few days later, maralago never pulled Coke from their menus

      It’s all for show

  3. Wasn’t it the Reps who supported Citizens United that says Corporations Are People Too? Reps gave them a voice now it appears to be coming back to bite the Reps in the butt . Proving Karma skips no one !

    1. @Gabriel Carter Thanks for that Gabriel. I’m not from USA and don’t know everything about your country. I do try though.

    2. @Gabriel Carter Please post this on Twitter and Facebook! Bravo! “it was a noticeably fraudulent ruling though. Who works for Citizen’s United? Clarence Thomas’s wife. The fact he didn’t recuse was scummy and he should have resigned because of it. When the Supreme Court had decisions affecting the Obama administration, his appointees recused themselves. Guess it’s too much to ask a Republican justice to not make decisions that they have a direct financial stake in.” GC

    3. @R Robin – I just decided to leave the Democrat party, because they got the issue of race all wrong. I guess I’m an independent now.

  4. Wouldn’t surprise me if facebook prefer ads money over permanently banning fat orange.

    1. For sure, Mark Suckenburg left Kenosha Guards up for over two hours,let the Qaaron Quacks run around like the ducks they are and he looks like a robot.

    2. Zucker doesn’t the need the money he’s busy colonizing hawaii as we type
      So why then? I don’t understand why anyone ever trusted that kid, I didn’t even watch socialnetwork and I know his deal
      It’s the Power. The power he never had as a dorky college student, until his hot-or-not college website blew up and morphed to where it is now

  5. somehow this reminds me of Ryan from the office setting up creed with an “online blog” and opened up a word document and typed in the address.

  6. It took them months to come up with a blog?
    What great idea are they going to come up with next?
    Morse code?

  7. So Facebook, which refused to take down fake ads and censor Russian actors from influencing American voters is more liberal? Righhhtt

    1. I know right, Facebook is Run by the Tribe, with a Tribal Member at its head and owner, and the tribe is Far Right, well besides when they are Far Left Feeding the Far Right by going after “White Males”… Don’t Worry they will be funding bothsides of the Coming War with Chi-na! Follow the Money, and Follow the Nose!

  8. If Trump really wanted to get the word out, he would hold a press conference in the Four Seasons Landscaping parking lot. Like the professionals.

    1. And in four years the unqualified tv reality show president ran the Country into the ground, and literally six feet under@thom wessels


  9. If they’re for the worker, then why are they against a$15/hr minimum wage, family paid leave, etc.

    1. @Matthew Keenan The amount of billionaires in ‘murica tells me there is more than enough profit being made to pay their workers a living wage.

    2. @eddie I have a trade. I’ve been an Ironworker for the last twenty years. I am also in the process of getting a pesticide license. I wouldn’t even get out of bed for $15/hour.

      What is the matter with you? Why don’t you go learn how to do something useful that people will pay you for? Sitting around whining and complaining is a waste of time.


    3. @bill car Then I suppose… you do not know what you’re talking about… But I will not hold it against you because you do not know what you do not know.

  10. Republicans are just reacting to not being the cool kids anymore, and they will always blame someone even if no one is to blame.

  11. *GQP:* (Tries rebranding itself as the working class party)

    *Also GQP:* (Unanimously voted against the American Rescue Plan)

  12. As Karl Marx once said, “History will repeat itself, first as tragedy, second as farce.” And, if ever proof was requisite that we’re hip-deep in farce territory, it can be found in the wide usage of terms like “big tech” and “woke companies.”

    1. @MysticFiddler1 it’s the projections, everytime. Imagine having this high predictability rate in sports betting
      I’d clean up at the casino too

    2. They’re using “woke” as an insult to Blacks who have used it for years to describe various members of their community. Its a code word to white people that these companies are siding with Blacks and POC and that is not to be considered a good thing.

    3. It’s way beyond code at this point
      I’m old enough to remember how well they hid it from the public, now with 45 “leading” the way, they stopped hiding@sk8queen

  13. It’s all smoke and mirrors with the GOP. They are “full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”

  14. There are four American stories: Enemy at the Door, I Can Do It Myself, Barn Raising, and Rot At the Top. Which story are we in?

  15. He’s doing it so he doesn’t have to interact with his base one on one. He can just send a message out to them and like little Lemmings they’ll run post it everywhere. But talk to them, nah. He only likes them when they’re giving him money.

  16. Thats why kids pick at other kids in school, because they hear what nasty things thier parents say about some people. Teaching them hate because you hate so deeply.
